The Formerly Moderate Muslim Immigrant Abdul Razak Ali Artan

Starting with this article ten years ago, and continuing with hundreds of post since, I have been urging western countries to ban further Muslim immigration and to deport the Muslims already living among us.
The reason? Islam is not a religion but rather a militant ideology and as soon as a Muslim realizes that truth he becomes overcome with Sudden Jihad Syndrome as happened to Somali Muslim immigrant Abdul Razak Ali Artan at Ohio State University.
As usual, those who knew him had zero suspicion that he harbored extremist thoughts. Of course as I wrote in this article there is no way one can differentiate Moderate Muslims from Extremists and so as long as we continue to suffer their presence in western societies we will continue to suffer the consequences of that presence.
In an interview with the campus newspaper Abdul was quoted as saying, “I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media...if people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen.”
What would people think was going to happen? Well, that depends:
- If you are a liberal: "Oh, how sweet, how peaceful, a Muslim praying. I love diversity."
- If you are a liberal politician: "Great! Another voter for Democrats."
- If you are a non-liberal: "I hope he doesn't go on Jihad."
- If you are Bernie: "The bomb should go off in 10, 9, 8, ...."
This Abdul seemed to be such a moderate, quiet, reflective young man. So the next time you hear a friend or associate praise one of their Muslim friends as someone we don't have to worry about, remind them about quiet, innocent-looking, prayerful Abdul.
If there is one positive thing to take away from this horrendous attack it is this: thank God the Ohio State University campus is not a GUN-FREE ZONE.
